"The most effectual engines for [pacifying a nation] are the public papers... [A despotic] government always [keeps] a kind of standing army of newswriters who, without any regard to truth or to what should be like truth, [invent] and put into the papers whatever might serve the ministers. This suffices with the mass of the people who have no means of distinguishing the false from the true paragraphs of a newspaper," -- Thomas Jefferson to G. K. van Hogendorp,

Oct. 13, 1785.

Beautiful pics.
Hope you had a lovely 4th. Maybe you grilled for your parents.
How are your parents doing?

Pictures are lovely!

I am living in an apartment and space is limited. I used to order plants online at www.givingplants.com that came with planters. I wish to have a garden like you have.

Thanks for the posts.
